  • Beautiful building surrounded by lovely gardens. Perfectly formed simple little museum in William Morris’ former home. Nothing stuffy, just a showcase of his amazing prints and interiors - as how he would have liked it I’m sure. Great Portuguese tarts in the cafe too!
  • An informative and compact little museum, perfect to come by of an afternoon and get an overview of the life and work of Morris. The lovely gardens at the back continue into a fair sized local park. Only drawback would be that the temporary exhibition space is very small, so the one I saw on Chinese Cultural Revolution era posters was really only a taster, but given the size of the museum, it couldn't be helped - it was only in a space the size of a small bedroom. But if you visit just for one of these rotating exhibitions, do know what you're in for.
